White, Out

Our planned path under the planet

From December 4, 2010 to January 3, 2011 we are going way off the grid: a semi-circumnavigation of Antarctica, starting off the coast of South America and ending 31 days later in the other hemisphere; in Hobart, Tasmania. We will be unable to update the site, check emails or really much of anything electronic. This will be good.

A very Happy Holiday season to everyone and an even happier New Year.

Whites, out.

  1. Hi all,
    Guess I missed you by a couple of hours. It is Dec. 4th, 1:33 a.m. in St. Louis.
    During Thanksgiving I had all 8 of my grandkids in front of my computer learning a bit about the world through your eyes. My older ones loved reading about the children you’ve met and played with and your action shots and videos. The younger ones loved your animal pictures. They all wanted to see your itinerary map over and over again.
    Looking forward to keeping up with your adventures.

  8. Hey! Merry Merry and Happy New Year. Can’t wait to hear more about your adventures. Have fun in and around Antarctica. Don’t go sledding on any icebergs… I hear they are faster than sand dunes!!

  10. Weary travellers. We wish you a very merry Christmas and New Year. Thank you for sharing your Dad with us for the holidays. We’ll take care of him. I’m sure the trip is easier now that you’ve jettisoned your ballast.
    What a 6 months it’s been for you.
    Keep up the great posts and videos.

  11. Whites,

    We are wondering if Santa makes it to the South Pole as well on Christmas. Hope all is well and that you are having a very merry White Christmas.

    All the best and looking forward to hearing, reading and seeing more.

  13. Dana, Greg and kids:

    Missed your Christmas card this year, so decided to spend some time on the blog this morning catching up on your journey. Hunkered down on the couch with my iPad, a cup of coffee and a blanket — what a treat it is to read about your adventures and share in just a bit of your excitement!

    We just arrived home from a Christmas break in London with the Wilcoxes. Between your family blog and theirs (www.365saturdays.org), we can just about experience anything the world has to offer! We will miss you in Australia in January by just a few days, en route to another Wilcox rendezvous in New Zealand in February.

    Keep up the great posts! You missed a blizzard here this week and some pretty good sledding, but there will be plenty of time for snow storms in years to come….

    All the best to all the Whites in 2011!

    Karen, Giles, Colin and Matthew
